Yes that’s the man, the no longer myth, the absolute legend Shohei Ohtani STEALING HOME!
That’s has to be the final box to check right? Like what else is there that this man hasn’t yet done on a baseball diamond? I’m sure he’s like bunted for a hit or something similarly stupid that a noob might point to and say “hey what about…” but in terms of cool individual shit that a baseball player can do on both sides of the ball, he’s now done it all.
Listen I’m sure the Lil’ Dogg is on the record somewhere as opposing MVPs for guys on terrible teams. And normally I would stand by that. Especially if a dude is just cranking up his stats to the detriment of the team. But that ain’t it here, folks. Shohei Ohtani is doing absolutely everything in his unlimited powers to turn the train wreck Los Angeles Angels in a winning club. The fact that the whole organization can’t seem to figure out how to make a winning team it’s the two most impactful players in the league can’t be held against Ohtani.
MVP. Put in the books. Possibly the greatest all around individual season of baseball by one man in MLB history. Stealing home is just the icing on the cake.
